Bill No 77. An ordinance to es
tablish a city t-calc at the New City Hnll.
and to regulate the weighing or supplies
furnished the city or St. Louis. -"'-J1"
Conncll Bill No. 77. as above, was read sec
ond time and referred to Committee on Mu
.J.0.190", "A1.1 N t27' An or-Jln-o-ce for the
reller or Minnie I, Gross, wife of George
W. Gross, deceased.
House Bill No. y An ordinance for the
relief of Herman Rergmann.
House BIH.s Nos. 27 and 120. as above were
each read per-ond time and referred to' Com
mittee on Claims.
. Mr. Wiggins offered the following- reso
lution: Whereas, On December 7. 1900, the Council
adopted a report of the Special Committee
appointed to make Inquiry Into the official
conduct of the Commissioner or Supplies
which report contained the followln- lan
guage: "All officers requiring: supplies shall, on or
before the first of each month make an es
timate of what articles are required for use
In their department for the coming month,
and shall make but one requisition per
month for any one article needed."
It is Indeed a most surprising reflection
upon tho efficiency and Intelligence of the
various Maors, Comptrollers, Supply Com
missioners; and. in fact, all officers or the
city government requiring supplies, during
the last twenty-two years, that an ordi
nance of the most vital Importance to the
public Interest should have been entirely
overlooked. It is plainly manifest that It
was the purposa of the ordinance quoted. In
connection with others governing the pur
chase of supplies, that requisitions for the
thirty dajs succeeding the first of each
month should be made simultaneously; that
thete should be consolidated by the Com
missioner or Supplies In an advertisement
inviting dealers to bid upon the different
articles designated. Your committee believe
that ir the provisions or the ordinance had
been rigidly enforce.!, at least 93 per cent
of the supplies would have been purchased
under competitive bids, and that an enor
mous saving would have been the result.
Instead of complying with the law. we
find that between 8.000 and 12.000 requisi
tions pass through the office of the Supply
Commissioner annually, and that practical
ly the only dvertlstnr for supplies which
has been done by tho Commissioner of Sup
plies has been for articles) specifically
named by ordlnnnce. such ns coal, ler,
groceries, in., but that dry gmuls. hard
ware, etc.. .iggreg.itlng many thousjii-ls of
doll.tr- In value, have btcn nought In the
4ipen market, practically without competi
tion, and In direct violation nf tli-- spirit
of the ordinances governing thiir purclia-c.
Resolved. That. In the ofliilnii of tli
('ounc.il. every effort shimld be nude In th
future by the heads of departments, and all
city officers who have anv dut in c.uinei
tltin with the purchase of -.hi piles. In ob
serve the provisions nf i-aid s.ctlnn l'-lit of
tho Municipal Code, to the end that l rop
er hystcm may be observed nnd cionomy
